Everybody Singing ‘Wonderwall’ To Gallagher
Earlier this month, footage of an entire Spanish restaurant singing ‘Wonderwall’ to Noel Gallagher was released.
The former Oasis guitarist was dining at the restaurant in Ibiza with his family, before a DJ dropped the track.
Despite clear embarrassment, Gallagher eventually joined in with the rest of the diners. Check that footage and Nova’s report on this here.
